Join one of our teams
Apprentices working for the council are fully-fledged members of their teams, carrying out a wide variety of jobs in the busy world of local government.
Apprenticeship opportunities with us provide you with an excellent opportunity to learn work-based skills and gain an NVQ qualification.
Business units where we have previously had apprenticeship opportunities include:
- Active4Today leisure centres
- Corporate administration
- External marketing and communications
- Human resources
- Parks and amenities
- Planning policy
- Revenues and benefits
- Waste management
Apprenticeship placements usually last for a temporary period of 12 months during which time you will benefit from training in your job role and develop a greater understanding of the council and the services we offer.
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee a permanent role at the end of the 12 months, but apprentices are encouraged to apply for any suitable vacancies that do arise during their time with us.
How to apply
Vacancies for apprenticeship opportunities with us can come up throughout the year. All of our apprenticeship vacancies are advertised on the Jobs Go Public website, at local job centres, NVQ training providers and on GOV.UK's find an apprenticeship service.
